Has anyone else got any little yellow bugs that walk in and out of the monitor,on the desktop sometimes ect.?

I have loads of skid marks accross my screen from where they have been squashed.

I am wondering if it is a computer thing or my filthy desktop.thanks.ben

Don't be so silly.

Seriously though, they could do damage.

I've got a lovely picture at work of a dead Cockroach inside a piece of equipment that got fried when the equipment was turned on. So I suppose if they got themselves across the mains they could short something out as they are composed of mainly water.
